I'm trying to catch up on my blogs. I'm about 2 weeks behind again. I suppose I may as well just accept the fact that I can't blog as much as I'd like. How is Bomber doing?

I'm glad you love the mountains too. There's nothing better as long as there are a few open spots to run flat out. I would always look for those when I rode my TB in NZ. Nevada mountains are just like the ones here. In fact, we're in the same mountain range. Small world, huh?

As for large dogs, well, Melian isn't so small as she seems. She's 24" tall. And Eddie's owner has a border collie who is always around the horses with no problem. She does try to herd them but she listens when she's told not to. I think it just takes patience, practice, and lots of time. The latter usually being the key ingredient that no one has!

How is your headache? I'm so glad you weren't badly hurt and that you were wearing your helmet. A friend of mine died by being bucked off her horse. I didn't use to wear a helmet when I was younger but I always do now and it has saved me at least a couple of times.

My sister and I rode this morning. It was pretty cold and both Eddie and Prince were quite lethargic. I guess I don't really blame them. We had a nice ride anyway but I didn't try jumping. Prince was barely lifting his feet so jumping was out of the question. Melian wore her new coat and she didn't run around as much either. But that isn't to say she didn't do anything. Normally she'll run flat out for an hour while we ride but this time she took a few breaks in between to sniff things. So she still got her day's worth of exercise in.

Pippin is doing great and I've taken him and Melian on a few more cart rides. He responds so well and Melian now runs to the cart immediately when I say "car". There's no hesitation and Pippin, of course, still goes to the far right when I say that. Melian is also getting really good at not being so tempted to chase them. Yet today when I was driving she looked out the window at a tempting truck and started licking her lips. Does she really think she can eat them?

Anyway, it's been pretty hectic here. My mother and grandmother visited a week ago and that was really nice to see them again. I hadn't seen my grandmother in two years because she lives overseas. And she got to meet Melian for the first time. They got along really well. And Pippin likes her because she gives him treats.

Well, that's all from me this time. The salmon are spawning here and it's really neat to see them. And we saw a golden eagle the other day eating something by the side of the road. It was just so magnificent. Okay, I'll stop now. Here's a vote for you and I hope everything is going fine for you and Bomber. ttyl
